Davis shows that the developed and developing world must now pursue 'sustainable development' requiring high levels of directed innovation. Industrial and commercial businesses of all kinds must bring about what amounts to a second industrial revolution.Managers at all levels must accept responsibility for this fundamental change. Products must be more durable. Repair, reconditioning, reuse and recycling must be maximized. This important book, now available in paperback, provides managers and students with practical strategies with which to respond to these challenges.
